Jujutsu-Kaisen, Profile of Okkotsu Yuta! Age, Birthday, Technique, Voice Actor, etc.

At 1st, let’s look at the birthday, birth date and voice actor.

Okkotsu appeared in volume 0 for the first time, and then he re-appered at chapter 137.

Profile of Yuta Okkotsu! Birthday, Age, formula, Voice Actor, etc.

First of all, let’s look at the profile of Yuta Okkotsu.

He looks like a normal high school boy with a medium build, but when he first appeared in volume 0, his personality was negative, backward, and introverted, and he was bullied by his classmates.

He was also bullied by his classmates. I’ll explain more later, but that bully was given a hard time by “Rika Orimoto”.

It has also been revealed that Yuta Okkotsu’s magic formula is “Rika”, the details of which will be explained later.

Yuta Okkotsu was originally a high school student in a normal school, but he was always possessed by a huge curse which has extraordinary power called “Rika Orimoto“.

This “Rika Orimoto” appears when Yuta is in a pinch and clears away obstacles with her immense power, so Yuta lives his life trying not to get involved with people.

One day, however, he is relentlessly harassed by four of his high school classmates, which causes Rika to manifest and literally stuff the bullies into lockers.


This incident led to the revelation of the grudge that haunted Yuta’s body, and he was almost executed.

However, thanks to the intervention of Satoru Gojo, Yuta was spared execution and transferred to the Tokyo Metropolitan magic technical college.

At this stage, Yuta Okkotsu’s technique is still completely unknown.

Yuta Okkotsu is a special class spellcaster at the beginning of school!

The “Shaman” are ranked according to their strength.

The lowest grade is 4th, followed by 3rd, semi-2nd, 2nd, semi-1st, 1st and so on.

Moreover, there are only four shaman of “special grade” in Japan (three if you exclude Geto), and Yuta Okkotsu is one of them.

Although his technique is unknown, it is clear at this point that his potential is extremely high.

Yuta Okkotsu is a descendant of Michizane Sugawara! What is his magic technique?

Yuta Okkotsu was thought to be an ordinary person, but when Satoru Gojo investigated Yuta’s family history in detail, he found out that he was a descendant of “Michizane Sugawara“.

Michizane Sugawara is a very big spellcaster who is said to be one of the three biggest grudge in Japan, and is distantly related to Satoru Gojo.

In chapter 11 of volume 2 of this series, Satoru Gojo says, “Okkotsu will become a shaman on par with me,” which shows his talent and high potential.

This makes me even more curious about the details of the technique.

Jujutsu Kaisen, What is Yuuta Okkotsu’s Technique “Rika” and his strength & ability?

So far, we have talked about Yuta Okkotsu’s profile.

In volume 0, it is described that the strength of “Rika Orimoto” who possessed Yuta Okkotsu is extraordinary, but it is also revealed that Yuta’s own qualities as a shaman are overwhelming.

In this section, I will explain about Yuta Okkotsu’s techniques, strength and abilities.

Yuta Okkotsu’s technique is “Rika”.

Yuta Okkotsu's technique is (C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

The name of Yuta Okkotsu’s technique is revealed in the official fan book, and it is described as “Rika“.

Obviously, the name of the technique is derived from the name of “Rika Orimoto”, and we are wondering about the relationship with “Rika” that Yuta Okkotsu showed in chapter 137 and 141.

It seems that the technique “Rika” is a kind of “super powerful shikigami”. It will be interesting to see the appearance of “Rika” in the future.

Yuta Okkotsu’s fighting style is to put the curse into the sword.

Soon after Yuta Okkotsu joined the Tokyo Metropolitan magic technical college, he learned the fighting style of putting a curse into his sword.

The purpose of this was to receive Rika’s too powerful curse little by little and put it into the sword, gradually increasing the amount of curse, and finally to be able to control Rika himself.

And from the fighting style he showed against Yuji Itadori in chapter 140, he has further refined his sword fighting style.

The unbelievable amount of magic power contained in the sword makes each sword an instant lethal attack.

The ability to copy the technique is the power of Rika Orimoto

In the last episode of the Jujutsu Kaisen volume 0, there is a scene in which Rika Orimoto uses a loudspeaker she created to use “Cursed words” when she confronts Suguru Geto.

The “Cursed words” is a type of technique in which the power of the spell is put into the words and released, and it is handled by Toge Inumaki.

This is a very advanced technique, and Yuta Okkotsu has actually reproduced it by copying it just by looking at it.

Normally, it is not possible to copy another person’s technique and use it unlimitedly, but Yuta Okkotsu and Rika Orimoto combined their skills to pull off this trick.

In this case, Rika created a loudspeaker with the spell seal of Inumaki family in it, so the ability to copy the technique itself is Rika’s power.

Yuta Okkotsu can heal others with his reverse technique

In the last chapter of Jujutsu Kaisen volume 0, besides copying technique, there is also a scene where Yuta uses the “reverse technique“.

Even Satoru Gojo tried to use the reverse technique when he was a student, but he was unsuccessful, which shows that the reversal technique itself is an extremely difficult technique.

At the time when Yuta healed Maki, Toge and Panda using the reverse technique, it was still less than a year after he was taught the spell. The fact that he uses the reverse technique so easily in this state shows an unusual sense.

Furthermore, the only shaman who can heal others using the reverse technique is Shoko Ieiri, so we can say that Yuta’s ability is extremely valuable.

Yuta Okkotsu’s curse power surpasses even Satoru Gojo’s!

In chapter 140, Yuta Okkotsu revealed a horrifying fact when he was confronted by Yuji Itadori.

Yuta Okkotsu’s amount of magic Power surpasses Satoru Gojo’s

The fact that he surpasses even the greatest shaman, Satoru Gojo’s magic power, shows that the shamans designated as special grade are all monsters.


However, Satoru Gojo is still the number one in terms of efficiency, because he consumes almost zero magic power due to the ability of his “Six eyes“.

In the first place, Yuta Okkotsu’s amount of magic power is just overwhelming, and Gojo Satoru’s amount of magic power is also unbelievable.

In addition to that, the fuel consumption is extremely good, so in effect it is almost an inexhaustible amount of magic power.

Yuta Okkotsu’s domain expansion

Yuta Okkotsu’s domain expansion(territorial expansion) has not yet appeared in the story.

I’m assuming that Yuta Okkotsu can use “domain expansion”, but considering his sense as a special grade shaman, I’m assuming that he has mastered it.

If Yuta Okkotsu activates the “domain expansion”, the attack of the technique “Rika” will fly inevitably, and it will be a terrible destructive force.

Did Yuta Okkotsu train abroad for the technique “Rika”?

Up to now, we have mainly talked about Yuta Okkotsu’s technique “Rika”, his strength, and his domain expansion.

In the main story, Yuta Okkotsu was staying abroad all the time, and what he was doing there was a mystery.

Here is an explanation of what Yuta Okkotsu was doing while he was abroad, based on the information in the book.

Also the possibility that Gojo Satoru’s business trip abroad was to meet Yuta Okkotsu is summarized in this article.

Yuta Okkotsu was staying abroad.

In Volume 2, chapter 10 of the Jujutsu Kaisen manga, Megumi Fushiguro briefly explains the current situation of Yuta Otokotsu.

It is revealed that Yuta is not in Japan at this time, but has been abroad.

Incidentally, Megumi describes Yuta as “the only person I can respect with my whole heart”, and he has become a senior who is respected by his juniors.

The reason why Yuta Okkotsu was abroad was to train the magic formula “Rika”?

There are no details about why Yuta Otokone was abroad in the first place.

However, from the information in the main story and the official fan book, these things have been revealed.

  • Yuta Okkotsu became a 4th grade shaman after the curse of Rika was lifted.
  • The name of Yuta Okkotsu’s technique is “Rika”.
  • Yuta Okkotsu has returned to the special grade from the 4th grade.

Yuta Okkotsu dropped to 4th grade once after lifting the curse of Rika, and then he came back to 4th grade.

Maybe Yuta Okkotsu’s stay abroad was to train to control the technique “Rika”.

Was Yuta Okkotsu training with Miguel in Madagascar, the country with the Baobab Tree?

In the door picture of the chapter 33 of the volume 4 of Jujutsu Kaisen manga, Okkotsu and Miguel are seen working together in some country.

The unusually large tree in the background of these two is a species called the “baobab tree”, which grows mainly in Africa.

In Zimbabwe, there is a baobab tree that is over 2,500 years old (it has already died), and in Namibia there is a baobab tree that is over 1,500 years old.

There is even a tourist attraction in Madagascar called the “Baobab Road”, where a forest of baobabs stands.

As Miguel is next to Yuta, perhaps he was learning the magic of Miguel’s home country and training in the technique of “Rika”.

[What's new in episode 145] Yuta Okkotsu and Miguel were looking for the (C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

The reason why Yuta Okkotsu and Miguel were abroad is revealed in chapter 145.

It was not to train Otokotsu Yuta’s techniques, but to find the “black rope” that Miguel had used in the Hyakki Yagyo.

In chapter 145, the “black rope” is mentioned as one of the means to break the seal of the “Prison realm“, and it seems that Yuta Otokone and Miguel came to Africa to look for it.

By the way, the black rope was used by Miguel to stop Satoru Gojo, so it was cut off by Satoru Gojo’s hand and disappeared.

Yuta Okkotsu and Miguel were originally enemies. When is his first appearance?

Incidentally, Miguel was originally an enemy of Yuuta.

When Miguel appears in Shinjuku during the “The Night Parade of a Hundred Demons” in volume 0, he shows his ability as a stopgap for Satoru Gojo.

Although he didn’t fight Yuta directly at that time, he was on Geto’s side at least as of volume 0.


Miguel used “Black rope”, supecial ranked tool, in his battle with Satoru Gojo, which dissipated even Gojo’s magic power and nullified it to some extent.

Also, Miguel’s comment about this rope, “I think it would take a surgeon in my country decades to weave one of these,” shows that advanced magic and techniques exist in Miguel’s home country.

It’s possible that Yuta Okkotsu had learned from Miguel how to control the technique “Rika” and other techniques.
